COVID-19 Update: please note that Techsploration’s in-person programming is postponed until further notice due to COVID-19 restrictions. Techsploration staff are currently finalizing contingency programming for the fall of 2020.
This annual one-day event is for young women in grades 10, 11 and 12. It provides Techsploration alumnae and guest students the opportunity to meet more role models working in exciting and challenging science, engineering, trades, and technology careers and participate in hands-on workshops. Attending this conference is an invaluable way for young women to learn about in-demand careers that may not otherwise occur to them: machinists, video game designers, research scientists, welders, survey technicians, aircraft mechanics, forensic scientists, to name just a few.
These Techsploration “graduates” are also encouraged to stay actively involved in the program by participating in the annual Techsploration launch, assisting in selecting the new school team, acting as a “big sister” to current participants and volunteering at the Techsplorer Event. Many of our alumnae have gone on to emcee events, share their experiences, and become role models themselves.
